Welcome to Advanced Surgery Institute online!
Advanced Surgery Institute (ASI) is a state-of-the-art ambulatory surgery
center, where surgeons perform a broad range of out-patient surgical
procedures. Specialties include General Surgery, Orthopedics, Otolaryngology (ENT), Pain Management, Plastic Surgery, and Podiatry.
As an ambulatory surgery center, we try not only to handle the complication, but also help you avoid getting complicated surgery altogether by way of educating you on the subject of various underreported illnesses. Today, we talk about hyperprolactinaemia.
Hyperprolactinemia (also called hyperprolactinaemia) is an illness characterized by the presence of above-average levels of prolactin (luteotropin) in the blood. The core purpose of luteotropin is stimulating breast milk production after childbirth, that means that above-average luteotropin levels are perfectly normal during the pregnancy. This hormone also affects estrogen and testosterone in both males and females.
We are going to split the symptoms into three categories for your convenience.
Symptoms in females:
Symptoms in males:
Symptoms in both sexes:
The main causes include:
Hyperprolactinaemia is usually diagnosed via blood test and MRI. There are several complications that can happen if hyperprolactinaemia is left undiagnosed and untreated, including complete loss of vision, severe hormone deficiency, and complications of pregnancy.
With all of that information in mind, let’s go over most common hyperprolactinaemia treatment methods:
Our Advanced Surgery Institute doesn’t just focus on the surgery itself. We think it is vital to raise awareness. Today, we are going to briefly talk about breast cancer, the 2nd most prevalent cause of cancer death in females.
Quick information regarding breast cancer (more details below):
Core symptoms include:
There are five overall stages of this kind of cancer, namely Stage 0 and Stage 4 in which cancer spreads to various other internal organs, including the lungs, liver, and brain.
Risk factors for this kind of cancer:
There are several treatment options available based on the type/stage of cancer. The most common kinds of breast cancer treatment are the following:
Our job, as an ambulatory surgery center, is not only making sure that the surgery goes smoothly. We care about patients; we care about them deeply – that’s why we feel that is our job to mention this particular serious risk. Don’t worry, it’s entirely treatable, but it is still a risk.
Recent data shows that acquired sexual dysfunction in both males and females is more common than you were led to believe. One of the reasons for female sexual dysfunction might be vaginal surgery or a pelvic surgery. For male patients, the situation is somewhat different – they also may encounter issues after a pelvic surgery, but there’s also a possibility of acquiring SD after a prostate surgery.
We have decided to address this issue, this risk because we don’t see it mentioned anywhere else all that often. As we mentioned before, our patients’ well-being is one number one priority, so we are making sure you are properly informed when it comes to all the possible complications, no matter how unlikely they are.
Once again, we would like to reiterate – acquired (post-surgery) sexual dysfunction is 100% treatable. In our opinion, the easiest way of treating these types of sexual issues is medication. Many people are aware of anti-ED medications for males, but not many people know that you can also purchase Sildenafil for woman.
Any female Viagra name, be it Lady Era or brand-name version, is equally effective, judging by our experience. It has everything to do with the way this drug works by directing the increased level of blood flow to the erogenic zones and blocking out enzymes that prevent lubrication. The male version of the drug is, of course, slightly different – it helps your body pump enough blood to the penis to respond to sexual cues in the right way. There are some other ways of treating sexual dysfunction, but they are not as effective – natural cures, self-injections, hormone replacement therapy, among many others.
It’s our job to not only make sure that you’re aware of potential risks, but also make sure you know the solution to this problem.
